But you have aready done the cycling thing...........why do it again?"
14.11.2010 6 °C
Because for the past 2.5 years we have been longing for the freedom of an endless trip. Nothing to worry about, nothing that you have to do, no alarm cocks, no schedules, no deadlines. Just a few maps, many good ideas and two sets of wheels.
These longings could be contained for a while but we knew that the day woud come that we would think "that is it. enough. time to go" It came some day in August. It took us about 10 minutes to move from wild idea to final decision. Then it was easy: quit the job, quit the house...........go.
This time we've set our eyes on South America.........the plan is Tierra del Fuego to Lima.....but let's see where the wind blows us. Which will probably be back to Tierra del Fuego by the way, as we may be facing some strong headwinds. We are looking forward to the emptyness, the rugged landscapes and the big, big skies.
For those secret longing adventurists out there, please do regard this blog as an open invitation to join us. Guest cyclists are aways welcome. Bring some good stories and a bicycle and join us anywhere along the way.
7 weeks to go and counting down!
